Vibration white finger (VWF) is a condition caused by the excessive use of vibrating power tools such as road breakers, drills, saws, vibrating compactors and even by holding materials that are being worked on by vibrating machinery. The consequences of vibrating white finger are as follows:

•    Tingling / numbness in the hands and fingers
•    Loss of sensation
•    Painful hands and fingers
•    Fingers going white
•    Inability to carry out everyday tasks
•    Reduced grip

If you suffer from vibration white finger then you could be entitled to make a compensation claim against your employer who has a duty of care towards the health and safety of its employees. This means that employers are responsible for encouraging their employees to take regular rest breaks, training their employees, informing their employees of the risks involved and providing the appropriate safety equipment such as anti-vibration gloves.
